air conditioning secondary pan
The secondary pan is welded to the unit above it, at an angle so that the condensation will run out of the pipe attached to the side. The pipe is attached about 3/4 of an inch above the bottom of the pan and thus, water collects below the pipe. The water collects in that corner, since the pan slants to that corner. It cover an area of about 8 inches away from the corner and is beginning to rust that area. This is only a small area (but obviously a problem), as the whole pan is about 4 ft. x 2 1/2 feet. Any ideas for a remedy without replacing the whole pan? The AC people want $600. to replace the pan. The rusted area isn't too bad yet. Not nearly rusted through.
